SCHATTI, Beat; INEICH, Ivan  e  KUCHARZEWSKI, Christoph. Auguste Ghiesbreght’s natural history explorations in Oaxaca and other parts of Mexico until 1854. Acta Zool. Mex [online]. 2018, vol.34, e3411184. ISSN 2448-8445.  https://doi.org/10.21829/azm.2018.3411184.

The authors review the zoological and botanical collections by Auguste Ghiesbreght from “Oaxaca” and other areas between 1838 and 1854. Taxonomically relevant are, for instance, the holotype of the Racer Coryphodon oaxaca Jan (Coluber constrictor L.), one of various amphibian and reptile species (coll. Ghiesbreght) not on record for Oaxaca, or a number of birds from southern Mexico implicitly attributed to Ghiesbreght but in fact gathered by other collectors. Zoological items and a plethora of plants from “Oaxaca” (coll. 1841–1854) encompassing many type specimens were obtained elsewhere, in particular the inland Gulf region between Hidalgo and the Orizaba Range. These results entail consequences regarding type localities or distribution, and possibly systematics, in different animal groups and botanical fields.

Palavras-chave : Amphibians; reptiles; birds; invertebrates; plants; distribution; type specimens; systematics.
